On a figure, if mentally to diametrical section, it resembles a small zeppelin. In the side pocket of a jacket he always wore a 200 gram glass beaker. This is in the very center of the dirigible. But not bulging pocket and a glass was never visible. Throw back a glass of vodka in his throat at once. His head was bent back so that the impression that he is not in the hands of a glass of vodka, a bugle and the trumpet now he will play Wake-up or evening retreat. It was an impressive spectacle.

True stories

Once I was young and aspired to a leadership position. According to Soviet canons for this should have been a member of the Communist Party. I was accepted into the party. Future chief must first be a secretary of the primary party organization. Combining the non-party free and paid administrative work. I became secretary.

May 9, 1945 Russian forced their partners in the anti-Hitler coalition - Americans, British and French - to sign the act with Germany's unconditional surrender. After all, our esteemed partners in the coalition, the quiet, did so without Russian - May 2, 1945. Therefore celebrate Russian victory over Nazi Germany is May 9. This date, in my opinion, is fair to all the winners. Here, to be honest - all fought together and signed the capitulation of the defeated enemy.

So here I am a young secretary of the primary party organization that has something about 15 Communist Party spend public meeting devoted to May 9. For the holidays should always be an open meeting. So we had to banish all employees. There were about 45 people. Spend meeting. It gradually moves to an end. At the meeting there checking me representative of the party apparatus. We in the party organization had only 1 participant in the war. He fought in the anti-aircraft artillery.

Participant of war, I want to tell apart. Over time, I ordered take this position after the departure of the veteran to a pension. I’m happy that this has not happened, but my hero is alive and well.

This man is my very cute. On a figure, if mentally to diametrical section, it resembles a small zeppelin. He wore cheap in the store bought costumes. In the side pocket of a jacket he always wore a 200 gram glass beaker. This is in the very center of the dirigible. But not bulging pocket and a glass was never visible.

Try to do this by yourselves, even if your sports figure, not as a zeppelin. At least for me, when I was a young man, has never worked. As my hero this is achieved, I do not know. It’s simply fantastic.

So here is my one and only war veteran with a glass in his pocket he drank on the job every day, 2 cups of vodka. The first glass of vodka he had been drinking - at 10 o'clock in the morning. Second one - in 16 hours. In the intervals between required methods of vodka could be optional alcohol intake.

I tactfully interested in his character - how he achieved such high production successes. He replied that in his childhood brought up on fresh milk, straight from the cow. And in 14 years, my future war party went to work at the distillery. That's what it means to education - from milk directly to alcohol!

You should have seen how he had been drinking. Throw back a glass of vodka in his throat at once. His head was bent back so that the impression that he is not in the hands of a glass of vodka, a bugle and the trumpet now he will play Wake-up or evening retreat. It was an impressive spectacle, which I always admired.

Now I am so many years that I actually was like a blimp, but drinking has not yet learned.
My hero and his wife had an impressive pair. He - a Russian peasant, the bun, the “zeppelin”, she - a slender, intelligent Jewish woman. They fought against Nazi together. There they were introduced. Subsequently get married.
